2018 Winter Celebration


On January 27th the Embassy of Japan participated in the 2018 Winter Celebration organized by the Governor General at Rideau Hall. The Winter Celebration is an event where families can enjoy winter sports and various cultural traditions, discovering how different countries embrace winter with their traditional foods and activities.

At the Embassy of Japan’s booth, we offered Japanese green tea tasting, an origami demonstration and workshop, and Japanese tourism information with a DVD and pamphlets. It was a wonderful opportunity to increase interest in Japan. Guests asked questions about where to buy Japanese tea or about visiting Japan, and many children and adults enjoyed trying origami.
